We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the latest updates to Ilios. This release, v3.64.3,
contains a whole bunch of bugfixes and updates, including updates to all our LTI components, dozens of usability fixes to the management UI, and numerous under the hood cleanups and improvements.
If you are a hosted school, these updates will automatically be available to your service. Otherwise, please update your code to the latest release in order to see these improvements.
: A bug was recently discovered which was allowing users to upload (via spreadsheet) multiple copies of learner records into a single learner group set. This is disallowed when using the Ilios UI to manage groups, however it was not being captured in the spreadsheet upload (or via the API). It is disallowed for a number of structural reasons; it also can cause a problematic corruption of data for audit, account management, and analysis. For these reasons it is not allowed in the Ilios groups model. We have corrected the bug, but encourage users to review their data to ensure that only a single record of a learner is entered into any single learner group tree.
if you have questions please don't hesitate to send us a note at email@example.com
Highlights in this release:
- API Changes: No breaking changes
- Schema Changes: No breaking changes
- Other Changes: preferred email now used as delivery address for reminders and email delivery when it is available; improved search for admin user search tool; improved layouts for various screens; improvements to text editor; improvements to onscreen notifications.

How to Update Your Frontend:
The Ilios frontend is always up-to-date on our content-delivery servers at Amazon S3, but you will need to regularly run a console command on your backend instance in order ensure that your users are seeing the latest version and that they are getting all the latest features and bugfixes. To make sure you users are receiving the latest frontend code at all times, just follow the steps described here:
Though you will probably never need to deploy the Ilios 3 Frontend on your own servers, the source for the frontend code can always be found at https://github.com/ilios/frontend/releases.
